I was young...

i was young in years
he was old
i was wise
he was dumb

i thought age should speak
higher years should be matured
but he is a man
a pedophile
a black hearted monster

he did wrong
i did right
i told of that night
i tried my best
to lock him up
to put him behind bars
but he still runs free

Sounds terrifying...more detail might produce more of an emotional reaction...maybe elaborate???

But i respect the courage in coming out with your story, it must be horrible. And to think such a monster still runs free...shudders
